Sound that stays true

Mixed by today's music masters

The MDR-1R has been made for today's music with the help of leading music artists. Pumping basslines and high notes are heard as they were intended.

Designed by artists

Whether you're listening to dubstep, R&B, or house, the headphones hit the right frequencies thanks to a creative partnership with Sony Music artists.

4Hz to 80kHz

Ultra wideband audio range

From bass so low that you can only feel it to the highest of possible frequencies, the HD driver unit extends audio from 4Hz to a piercing 80kHz.

HD Driver Unit with enlarged vents

Powerful driver units are crucial in meeting the sub-bass range of contemporary music. The high definition 40mm drivers have large vents for quick bass response.

40mm liquid crystal diaphragm

Hit the high notes

For vocals and other mid-high range notes to sound true, the MDR-1R features a 40mm liquid crystal polymer film diaphragm for rigidity and lightness.

For long hours in the studio

Wear the MDR-1R headphones all day long without any discomfort to your head. The headphones are made with pressure relieving cushions for longer listening.
